Plutodes cyclaria

This and the next three species are very similar, but cyclaria has a paler, more rufous tone to the wing patches, and these are generally larger such that those on the hindwing are barely separated, and sometimes even touch just subdorsally in cyclaria and evaginata sp. n.

Geographical range. Borneo, Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia.

Habitat preference. This is the commonest Bornean species, found widely in lowland forests but perhaps more frequently in the lower montane zone. The highest record is from 1500m on G. Kinabalu.
